I was looking through one of those little Family Living recipe booklets (specifically "Gifts for Friends", I'm sure there's a joke in there about giving this to your "friends" so you'll look better by comparison) and came across this recipe. I knew from the moment I read the title that I had to go home right then and make it. Fortunately for my GPA, I waited until lecture was over, and then dashed home to mix up some deliciousness.

It didn't really wind up being that cakey. The "batter" was more like cookie dough, and required a lot of spreading. It's pretty freaking delicious, though.





Recipe!
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 (F). Cream butter and sugar, add milk and vanilla and mix until blended. Sift together flour and salt, add to creamed mixture and stir until blended. Melt chocolate chips (with some oil, if necessary). Spread half of cake dough/batter in 6 or 7 inch pan (mine was springform, I don't see why that was necessary, though). Spread melty chocolate over dough. Spread the rest of the dough/batter over chocolate. Cook about 40 minutes, or until edges are brown.

Om nom nom. Cakey buttery doughy goodness.

Crap.  I need to stop reading the dessert posts. 

This *looks* like a gigantic cookie.  And, (un)fortunately, I do have all of the ingredients...  might have to try this tonight. 

Thank You for sharing... my scale does not like you right now though.   Wink

Paint is drying on the last of my kitchen redecorating projects, so I think I deserve a cake before I get to cleaning up.  I am soooo making this right now.

Ok, so I doubled the quantities and made it in a 9x9 pan since I didn't have any smaller pans.  It just came out of the oven and it looks great.  Plus it was one of the best tasting batters I've licked off a beater in a long time!  Tongue

Just cut into the cake.  The bottom layer isn't as cooked as I would like, but it is still delicious!

Just made this with my girls...it was good, and definitely tasted fattening! But it didnt rise up, its kinda just a big hunk a butter. Do you think some baking powder would make it more fluffy next time?  Huh Did I not cook it long enough? Hmm.

I was wondering about the rising thing also.  I wondered if it didn't have to do with lack of eggs, you know like on brownie mixes it says for fudgey brownies add 2 eggs and for cake like add 3 eggs.

I'd maybe throw some baking powder in there. Let us know if it makes it rise-y! Smiley I only cooked it about 30 mins. It was indeed brown around the edges but I think it could have used several more minutes. I used a 9" pie plate. If I could find my freaking camera I would take a pic and we could compare notes!

Yeah, mine didn't really rise either. I'm sure some baking soda and/or eggs would help, but I see no reason to have a rising cake if it's delicious as is. Wink

<this is embarassing...> so upon closer inspection of the ingredients, I see I misread the amount of butter. I put in two sticks/one cup--which, at the time, I thought seemed like alot, but hey, its a butter cake!....and yes! IT IS alot..hence the hunka butter incident. That said, I just had some for breakfast. if it's wrong, I don't wanna be right!!  Cheesy

Please disregard any further comments from me, I have frequent blonde moments when baking...

Tee Hee Hee.
Sounds delicious!
Looks like it might be scone-like.

Anybody had questions about the portion of chocolate chips? 1/4 what?
1/4 CUP?
1/4 Tablespoon?
1/4 GALLON? Yum!
